CHIEF COMPLAINTS :
1.Temporo Mandibular Joint Disorder – Woke up one morning (approx 3 weeks ago) with acute and sudden pain in my ear on the right hand side. Even a slight movement of the jaw resulted in severe pain. Had visited a dentist and an ENT for a cure. Was confirmed by both of them of TMJ disorder. Was a given pain killer & muscle relaxant drug. At present, the pain has reduced but unable to move my jaw properly. I can’t yawn or eat properly.
If I try to yawn or try to open my mouth widely, it pains & the pain radiates to the right temple,
Please advise remedy
OTHER COMPLAINTS --
Chronic Constipation—Suffering from constipation since the age 13 years. At age 13, was down with Jaundice, Typhoid & Paratyphoid. This happened in a gap of 2 months. Since then I had problems related to digestion. Never had normal bowel movement. Started greying of hair & relied on laxatives for bowel movements. Gradually developed into a weak body structure. Unable to digest food properly. Feel bloated even after a small meal. The bloatedness remains throughout the day. Feel uneasy in breathing due to the bloatedness (shortness of breath). There is an uneasy feeling in the abdominal region when I wear some clothes.
I feel difficulty in passing even a soft stool. Throughout the day, there is an urge to pass the stool.
There is totally no activity of intestine or rectum. All this results in loss in concentration towards my work. Inferiority complex has also developed due to lack of vigour.Bowel movement is very rare, most of the time I don’t have bowel movement for more than 8 days. Then I resort to taking laxatives as the pain in the back becomes unbearable.
Stool is soft & yellowish/brownish with lot of mucus & intestinal linings.
At present, I am taking Yelo Tabs as a laxative.I remain constipated for days as a result I feel very uncomfortable, aggressive, can’t tolerate anything & don’t feel hungry at all.
Feeling of pressure at the point of anus & in the rectum. Severe back pain in the morning especially at right hand side of the spinal chord.
Had tried Allopathy, Homeopathy & Ayurveda.
3.Met with an accident in Jan, 2017 & broke my calcaneous bone of my right leg along with a badly twisted ankle. Since then I am unable to walk properly because of severe pain in ankle. I cant stand on my legs at a stretch not more than 15 mins.
Soaking the ankle in ice cold water (only) helps me in reducing the pain.
4.Have developed varicose veins on my thigh of left leg and on the portion between knee & ankle. These days it pains. My mother has varicose veins (very advanced stage) on both legs.
5.Have been diagnosed with Sinus Tachycardia a month ago.
APPETITE : Decreased appetite. If I don’t take any laxative then I feel very uneasy. Stomach feels bloated, distended pain in the back in the morning after I wake up. Don’t feel like eating. Once the stomach is clear, the symptoms get reduced.
